Clear associations of sleep, cognitive performance, and behavioral problems have been demonstrated in meta-analyses of studies in adults. This meta-analysis is the first to systematically summarize all relevant studies reporting on sleep, cognition, and behavioral problems in healthy school-age children (5-12 years old) and incorporates 86 studies on 35,936 children. Sleep duration shows a significant positive relation with cognitive performance (r = .08, confidence interval [CI] [.06, .10… Expand

The Relationship Between Sleep and Cognition in Children Referred for Neuropsychological Evaluation: A Latent Modeling Approach
TLDR
The nature of sleep problems was characterized and a negative association between sleep-related problems and cognition that did not reach statistical significance was demonstrated, which may be used as a conceptual framework for future work examining these multi-dimensional constructs in a parsimonious fashion. Expand
Cognition and objectively measured sleep duration in children: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
A significant effect was found between sleep duration and cognition, suggesting that longer sleep durations were associated with better cognitive functioning, and future research using more rigorous experimental methodologies is needed to properly elucidate the relationship between sleepduration and cognition in this age group. Expand
A longitudinal study of infant sleep and its effects on cognitive development
Sleep is a common behaviour in all animals and crucial for physiological, social, emotional, and cognitive functioning. Previous studies have demonstrated the importance of sleep for cognition inExpand
The contribution of good sleep to working memory in preschool: A matter of sleep quality or duration?
TLDR
The results suggest that the association between sleep and WM is dependent on: (a) specific aspects of sleep, (b) age, and (c) gender. Expand
In School-Age Children Who Were Born Very Preterm Sleep Efficiency Is Associated with Cognitive Function
TLDR
Results confirm lower cognitive test scores and more nocturnal awakenings in normally developing early preterm children compared to full-term children, suggesting poor sleep efficiency may aggravate cognitive deficits, particularly in children who are more vulnerable due to premature birth. Expand
Self-reported sleep duration and cognitive performance in older adults: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Findings establish self-reported extreme sleep duration as a risk factor for cognitive aging as well as cross-sectional and prospective cohort studies revealed the significant long-term impact of short and long sleep on multiple-domain performance only. Expand
Sleep and Cognitive Functioning in Childhood: Ethnicity, Socioeconomic Status, and Sex as Moderators
TLDR
Findings indicate that lower sleep efficiency may contribute to lower cognitive functioning especially for AA children and boys, and underscore the importance of individual differences in explicating relations between sleep and children's cognitive performance. Expand
Poor sleep and neurocognitive function in early adolescence.
TLDR
In adolescent girls, poor sleep quality was only weakly associated with poorer executive functioning, while in boys, poorer sleep quantity and quality were associated with an inattentive pattern of executive functioning. Expand
Sleep across early childhood: implications for internalizing and externalizing problems, socioemotional skills, and cognitive and academic abilities in preschool.
TLDR
Findings indicate that objectively measured sleep variability and late sleep timing in toddlerhood are associated with higher levels of internalizing problems and poorer academic/cognitive abilities in preschool. Expand
Sleep and its relation to cognition and behaviour in preschool‐aged children of the general population: a systematic review
TLDR
Results point to an association between sleep, behaviour and cognition as early as preschool years, but the strengths of associations reported in the articles were relatively small, and thus require large sample sizes to ensure statistical detection power. Expand

Sleep quality and cognitive performance in 8-year-old children.
TLDR
Those who slept less or had poorer sleep quality had lower test scores in cognitive tasks, particularly those pertaining to visuospatial performance, although the association was not very strong. Expand
The influence of sleep quality, sleep duration and sleepiness on school performance in children and adolescents: A meta-analytic review.
TLDR
The relationships between sleep quality, sleep duration, sleepiness and school performance were examined in three separate meta-analyses including influential factors (e.g., gender, age, parameter assessment) as moderators to gain insight into the different relationships. Expand
Sleep, neurobehavioral functioning, and behavior problems in school-age children.
TLDR
Children with fragmented sleep were characterized by lower performance on NBF measures, particularly those associated with more complex tasks such as a continuous performance test and a symbol-digit substitution test, which raised important questions about the origins of these associations and their developmental and clinical significance. Expand
Sleep quality, duration and behavioral symptoms among 5–6-year-old children
TLDR
Both short sleep duration and sleeping difficulties are associated with children's behavioral symptoms and intervention studies are needed to study whether children’s behavioral symptoms can be reduced by lengthening sleep duration or improving sleep quality. Expand
Growth of Cognitive Skills in Preschoolers: Impact of Sleep Habits and Learning-Related Behaviors
Research Findings: The present study used a longitudinal design to identify how sleep habits and learning-related behaviors impact the development of cognitive skills in preschoolers (ages 3–5).Expand
A meta-analysis of the impact of short-term sleep deprivation on cognitive variables.
TLDR
Of several moderators tested, only time awake was a significant predictor of between-studies variability, and only for accuracy measures, suggesting that heterogeneity in test characteristics may account for a significant amount of the remaining between-study variance. Expand
Association between sleep duration and intelligence scores in healthy children.
TLDR
The results argue for an extension of the original theory-referring not only to daytime but also to nighttime behavior, which concludes that children with higher daytime cognitive efficiency show increased nighttime efficiency (reflected by shorter sleep duration). Expand
Sleep and behavioral/emotional problems in children: a population-based study.
TLDR
Bedtime resistance was the only sleep behavior associated with either hyperactivity or conduct problems in children, and longer sleep durations appear to occur more frequently in children with both hyperactive or emotional problems. Expand
Associations between sleep duration patterns and behavioral/cognitive functioning at school entry.
TLDR
Shortened sleep duration, especially before the age of 41 months, is associated with externalizing problems such as HI and lower cognitive performance on neurodevelopmental tests, highlighting the importance of giving a child the opportunity to sleep at least 10 hours per night throughout early childhood. Expand
Cognitive function following acute sleep restriction in children ages 10-14.
TLDR
Higher cognitive functions in children, such as verbal creativity and abstract thinking, are impaired after a single night of restricted sleep, even when routine performance is relatively maintained. Expand
